[rdfweb-dev] foaf:publications and greater specificity

I find the foaf:publications property interesting, in that it "indicates a
foaf:Document listing (primarily in human-readable form) some publications 
associated with the foaf:Person." However, is "publications" in this context
meaning "documents that have been made available to the public"? I see that
would cover things put on personal websites; it's just that I mentally
associate the word "publications" with dead-tree media. Maybe I'm just too

That said, I'd quite like to see something like, maybe, foaf:authored and
foaf:coauthored to indicate singular or joint authorship of a foaf:Document;
in the case of foaf:coauthored, perhaps that could come with a
foaf:coauthoredWith property, which would point to somebody else's FOAF
document, or maybe be their name. Make any sense?
